    Red face 12.04 fglrx and amdcccle version difference

    I updated to 12.04 from 11.10 during the alpha, due to the multimonitoring support of 12.04 which simply ROCKS!!!!!

    Yesterday, I have updated to the latest 12.04 which included the new fglrx

    Code:
    dpkg -s fglrx
    shows

    Code:
    ...
    Source: fglrx-installer
    Version: 2:8.960-0ubuntu1
    ....
    However the
    Code:
    amdcccle
    still shows

    Code:
    ...
    Catalyst Version: 11.11
    Driver Packaging Version 8.911.111025a-128237C-ATI
    ...
    Is this a problem? Which version is actually installed and in use? Why does this happen? Do i need to fix something?

    Thank you very much

    It is a bug and you don't need to fix anything. You can always determine exactly what version of fglrx you are running by viewing file /var/log/Xorg.0.log, search for fglrx. The version will be ghown in the following few lines. However, it will be of the form 8.91.4 or 8.96.4, not 11.11 or 12.2.

    There are some instructions somewhere for making amdcccle show the correct version number, but I dont have them handy.

    1) purge (purge !) all fglrx packages
    2) install them again
    3) sudo aticonfig --initial -f

    works for me, but I got before these commands the same bug.

    I'm a bit reluctant to do this. Everytime I have messed with fglrx i got burned .

    Can you do what you propose without restart? do you issue
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx*
    ?


    And how do you install the drivers afterwards?

    The method I am talking about only involves removing a few configuration files. I guess I'll have to look it up and report back.

    Here it is:

    1) Stop gdm, kdm, or lightdm

    2) rm /etc/ati/amdpcsdb

    3) Restart the graphical session or reboot the system

    Hello,

    There is also another way of uninstalling and installing...use synaptic and do a search of fglrx.

    Uninstall the dev and fglrx and amdcccle. Shut off the computer (not sure why but it works for me.) Start up synaptic and if you have the updates of dev,fglrx, and amdccle install them and then turn off the computer. Restart and you should see you have the latest installed.
